Good Morning again!!I'm so EXCITED! Ihave been looking forward to this release from The Greeting Farm more than any other and I'm sure it's not hard to guess why! The girls are finally here!! I can't gush enough over how AWESOME these little girls are! The clean lines and large images make these a pleasure to color. They are destinctly different from the Anyas and Ians style, but if you look closely you'll see familiar signs that these are drawn by our dear Marie. Miss Madelynn is all snug and cosy in her cute little outfit and that gorgeous peony on her hat is so sweet! I could so see my little girl in this outfit! I used this week's Friday Sketchers challenge #75 for this layout and added a lot of bling to make this card sparkle! This might be my favorite out of the three cards. Miss Lottie and her bowl of applies is so sweet with her hair in piggy tails and perched on that wall. For some reason she looked like a redhead to me. :) The layout is from this week's Weekend Sketch Challenge #103 which worked so well with this image and Basic Grey's colorful Lemonade paper collection. It's Snow White! No, it's Ava and her froggy. How adorable is she?! She should be because the real little Ava, whom this image was created after, is our proud TGF Coordinator's little girl! How proud is mama right about now?! This 'week's Sketch For You To Try was perfect for this card and I used a combination of Basic Grey (Marrakesh), Memory Box (Spiceberry) and The Greeting Farm's Sunny Glen paper to tell the Snow White story. How's that for cute? What's more? We have not one...but three contests beginning today in the TGF Galleria!
